|Thrust Vectoring, High Alpha Research - NASA|
The center used an F-18 as the High Angle-of-Attack Research Vehicle in a program from 1987 to 1996. Fresh from its reconstruction (it was assembled from many parts and affectionately dubbed "Silk Purse"), the aircraft was extensively instrumented both to record data at high angles of attack and as a means of developing flight research techniques in high-alpha flight. Researchers also conducted visual studies of the airflow over various parts of the aircraft at high alpha using tracer smoke, tuf...

|Analytical calculation of a single jet in cross-flow and comparison with experiment - Claus, R. W|
A series of progressively finer grid systems to calculate the single jet in cross-flow experimentally measured were employed. The experimental measurements provide a collection of velocities, turbulence intensities, and jet concentration profiles with measurements of the inlet field. The use of a series of progressively finer grid systems allows a differentiation between numerical errors and the hydrodynamic modeling assumptions embodied in the 3D combustor code.

The longitudinal stability and control characteristics of a B-29 airplane have been measured with a control surface booster incorporated in the elevator-control system. The measurements were obtained with the booster operating to provide various control-force gradients and various maximum rates of control motion.

|Spray Cooling Trajectory Angle Impact Upon Heat Flux Using a Straight Finned Enhanced Surface - Silk, Eric A.|
Experiments were conducted to study the effects of spray trajectory angles upon heat flux for flat and enhanced surface spray cooling. The surface enhancement consisted of straight fins machined on the top surface of a copper heater block. Spray cooling curves were obtained with the straight fin surface aligned both parallel (axial) and perpendicular (transverse) to the spray axis. Measurements were also obtained on a flat surface heater block for comparison purposes...

|A wave-envelope of sound propagation in nonuniform circular ducts with compressible mean flows - Nayfeh, A. H.|
An acoustic theory is developed to determine the sound transmission and attenuation through an infinite, hard-walled or lined circular duct carrying compressible, sheared, mean flows and having a variable cross section. The theory is applicable to large as well as small axial variations, as long as the mean flow does not separate. The technique is based on solving for the envelopes of the quasi-parallel acoustic modes that exist in the duct instead of solving for the actual wave, thereby reducin...

The flow in the divergent part of a highly over-expanded nozzle suffers strong instability due to formation of shock waves which causes mixing enhancement in the flow and destabilizes the shear layer adjacent to it.

A study was made to determine the effect of coolant injection angularity on gaseous film-cooling effectiveness. In the correlation of experimental data an effective injection angle was defined by a vector summation of the coolant and mainstream gas flows. The cosine of this angle was used as a parameter to empirically develop a corrective term to qualify a correlating equation presented in Technical Note D-130 that was limited to tangential injection of the coolant...
